“They have the power and strength and now the big thing is the confidence.
“Having won the Champions League, Club World Cup and Super Cup, they have the feeling and the squad is very strong. They will be hard to shift in the second part of the season.
“People were trying to put us in a race with Liverpool but we know where we are.
